wifeys 2nd mazda 6
By dailydrivernc on
2009 Mazda 6 i Touring 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 5A)
ive been reading reviews of suvs on here thinking of trading our 6. after reading about the issues with the arcadia i thought id check out reviews for the car i already own. these 6's rank high and i thought id put in my 2cents.
our 6 has push button start, roof, all options but nav and leather. telescopic steering is nice. fastest 4cyl ive ever drove. 34mpg @65mph, city mid 20s. back seat room is largest
and most leg room ive seen. fit and finish is nice
but plastic on windsheild pillars starting to warp at just 36k miles, and we park in a garage. guess in the sun at work during the day is taking its toll.
traded a hybrid civic on this, 6 has +pwr,+room, and almost same mpg
4cyl power 170hp, same as some v6 cars
roomyness rivals big cars, back legroom is an engineering marvel.
observed 25 mpg city, 34 hwy, why even get a hybrid or a compact car?
styling, looks like a lexus
cost, buy a loaded 6 for several $k under a camry or accord.
reliable, our 2006 mazda 6 never had any problems. powertrain reviews look good too. just change oil and drive for 200k.
i wouldnt suggest any improvements but mazda needs to step up their marketing. theres a ford fusion commercial on every 5 mins but mazda consistantly gets the highest reviews for all their models sectors except the rx8. the mazda speed3 beats the caliber srt and hhr ss. the mazda cx9 beats out the acadia, flex, acura.
i will never buy a car without reading edmunds customer reviews. a coworker got a used outlook that was in the shop constantly-u read the reviews one these and u see why.
